Soulx30

Arbitrary numeric milestones are awesome and demand human recognition. This cannot be debated, probably.

Thus, for today’s Lowdown on this. the day of the 30th edition of Missing Link Records’ hugely popular Soul Night at HumBrews, we offer you perhaps the funkiest Vine in the history of vining. Feast your eyes on the one, the only, DJ Mantease warming up for tonights show on KHUM’s Midday Dance Party. That’s six seconds well invested. Either see you on the dance floor tonight, or there are plenty of other Friday night distractions in the listings below. -AG
